quote: x86 just can't compete with ARM SoCs when it comes to the sweet spot of portability and battery life.
quote: If the Surface Pro had 10 hours of battery life you wouldn't be able to find one. Microsoft wouldn't be able to keep up with demand.
quote: Windows RT Isn't Going Anywhere Until... x86 tablets get better battery life. And even then, ARM will always be ahead of the curve.
